Charlie Sheen Plea Would Involve Jail Time

5/7/2010 11:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen is worried about doing 30 days in jail for his Aspen criminal case ... and with good reason, because we've learned there are active plea bargain negotiations underway that would land Sheen in the pokey.

Charlie Sheen plea would involve jail time
TMZ first reported ... the Aspen D.A. was originally willing to allow Sheen to plead guilty to a felony with no jail time.  Sources say under the D.A.'s old proposal, Charlie would be placed on probation for 2 years and at the end of the period his conviction would be expunged -- erased.

But sources say Sheen's people had a practical problem with the plea proposal -- As one source said, "There are a lot of ways to violate probation, and we don't want Charlie doing something that in the next two years could land him in prison for a probation violation."  Translation -- Charlie would probably do something to cross the legal line in the next 2 years. 

Sources also say, Charlie was also worried someone would try to extort him -- i.e., some woman would demand money, or else she'd go to the D.A. with a bogus story.  As one source says, "Charlie has a giant bull's eye on him."

So our sources say there's a new proposal on the table -- Charlie would plead either guilty or no contest to a misdemeanor and get jail time.  We're told right now Charlie is willing to accept 10 days in jail but the D.A. wants at least 30 days.

The reason Charlie's people want jail time -- once he serves his sentence he would either not be placed on probation or he'd get probation for a very short period of time -- so if he screws up later, the Aspen case won't come back to bite him.

We're told there are active negotiations underway between Charlie's lawyers and the D.A., but so far no deal has been reached. 

Sheen was arrested Christmas morning in Aspen, Colorado for felony second degree assault, felony menacing and criminal mischief -- a misdemeanor. Brooke told 911 dispatchers Charlie had a "knife" and "threatened me" and that she feared for her life.

As we first reported, Brooke was legally drunk with a .13 blood alcohol level when she made the 911 call ... at 8:34 in the morning.

Hey Charlie! I Love your Show and watch all of the reruns as they come on the air! You should move to another country for those Two Years and deprive the US of any and all taxes for that time period!

I wonder how much of the trouble Charlie Sheen is in is because he has been outspoken about the "911 Truth" movement? Look for videos on YouTube and the web if you don't know what I'm talking about.

IF anything Charlie should get house arrest and a piece bond out on Brook to stay away from him for the next five years or forever .With House arrest Charle could go back and forth to work . Anyway records show Brook was drunk how do the courts really know drunk Brook was telling the truth ? Is it just because Brook picked up the phone dialed 911 and babbled accusations about Charlie ? Any drunk could do that .Charlie needs to dump her she is trouble see the mess she has gotten him into ! What is wrong with a lot of these women today ? Almost every male " I know " or story i've heard of men in trouble - a woman is behind it and most of the time it is because the men are taking the woman's blame to keep a woman out of trouble or the woman is setting the man up to fail for her gain . Denise please what does she have to do with this post did someone just put her name out there for her to get attention Denise is the past a lost name .
OH BtW i am a female

Lisa, in response to your post about Denise Richards, I always believed her.



I have followed both her and Charlie's careers and LOVE his comedy, as well as her in the roles she's portrayed. He's hilarious on "Two-and-a-Half Men," even moreso since he's playing a sort of caricature of his true self. It's just sad that he can't overcome his own inner demons. I don't think he's a bad guy. I just think he has issues with alcohol and maybe anger management.



From the sound of things (Brooke was both drunk and high on crack cocaine, herself) this wasn't a one-sided fight. That still doesn't excuse Charlie's behavior, though, and it's time he grew up. Maybe 30 days in jail IS what he needs. I hope it doesn't hurt his show -- not because I care that much about HIM, but for the show -- those who love it (like me) and all the others who also work hard to make it a top-rated comedy.



As for Denise, I think she's a goddess who has always deserved better. I'd treat her like a queen were she my wife.

The positive thing in all this is that after someone is convicted of a felony they can no longer vote in this country. So, the more Hollywood elite liberals convicted, the less voting power.

I don't care one way or the other what happens in this situation. He has always been privileged and am sure he has the best lawyers available working in his defense. However, there are many more terrorizing people out here than Charlie Sheen. Why don't they just get over it and go after real criminals. They had a fight-lots of people do, but not all contact the police.

Love the show. But maybe a little jail time would teach Charlie a lesson.
Or make him do some community service. Make him wear a sign that says...I'm an AH on the TV show and in real life.

My guess Brooke was a Viral out of control dangerious Bitch coming at Charlie with a basball bat, or golf club. Charlie, grabs a knife, says dont come any closer bitch, or I'll have to protect myself. Brooke calls 911 charlie admits to grabing a knife and making defensive threat. POP! Another sucker

Why shouldn't he serve time for his crime. Just because he a Big Star and make Big Bucks doesn't make him above the law. If I did what he did I would have to serve time.
